>> 1. Does anyonw know if the view for passing through Landwasser Viaduct on Glacier Express is the same as the one on Bernina Express?
As rockoyster mentioned, you have to be quick. On the official Bernina Express, they will announce the approach of the Landwasser Viadukt, but it doesn't hurt to be aware yourself of when it is coming up, as it is all over in about 20 seconds! Travelling in the direction of Chur, be ready to look for it once the train pulls out of Filisur.
Another particularly photogenic piece of railway architecture is the Brusio circular viaduct, not far into the journey when you are travelling from south to north. Be ready for it after you have passed Campascio station (which the train will not stop at).
I have attached some photos of the Landwasser Viadukt and Brusio circular viaduct, which I took through the train window with a pocket point-and-shoot camera. I was travelling north to south on a regional train, seated on the right in a window seat. To get the same view travelling south to north, you would need to be seated on the left, facing backwards.
I have also attached a photo showing the interior and windows of the regional train on the Bernina Express route.
>> 3. How to check the closing time of each station's Express Luggage service? Based on SBB webstie, the closing time the station are: Zurich 0430-0130, St. Gallen 7/24, Murren (no info).
Those will be the station closing times, but I wouldn't be surprised it the luggage counter closed earlier.
Mürren baggage services are open Monday to Sunday 07:35 to 11:50 and 13:45 to 17:45.
Strangely enough, this information is not provided for Zürich and St Gallen stations. It might be worth using the form on the following page to enquire, to avoid any unpleasant surprises ;-)
